Slim my terminal some trash!!! We dispatch like 9:30-45 half the time smh.
CThompsonTv (4 days ago)
We've been getting out 9:15 -9:30 now
MsTiff Madsen (14 days ago)
Wait, why don't they have the package handlers strap the packages in? That looks very unsafe. Driving truck, we had to strap our cargo down. Load straps.
CThompsonTv (14 days ago)
For the most part they'll stay

I work Fed ex ground in okc we dispatch at 9:30-10a our dispatch time is ridiculous
Jason Fink (20 days ago)
Is dispatch the same as the time we launch from the station?
Jason Fink (20 days ago)
If dispatch is launch time, then we usually are out of station between 7:50am or so or later depending on trucks/flights. Late freight sucks. I am a late start so I start at 7:30am
Y4shiRoku (21 days ago)
12:30 and you got almost half of the truck gone, you the mvp. lol
Taylar James (21 days ago)
Amen brother. I was a Home Delivery guy for about 6 years 3 Years in  Chicago 3 years Seattle and Im still emotionally and mentally recovering. The most stops I had during Christmas was almost 300 stops  we had to load our own trucks, and it was downtown Chicago. Ive never been so stressed in my life. My average stops were from 120 to 150. Definitely under paid and under appreciated.

Taylar James how is that even possible? did you sleep at the hub?
Mr Harvey Guy (22 days ago)
8:30 is right around the normal range anytime past 9:00 is a little later than normal for packages to be made available. If your van is messy everyday, look in to your vision map. Also follow up with the VL manager. If that doesn’t do it, get with the Sort Manager and or P&D manager
shortymackinem (23 days ago)
On a average we get dispatched at 8:00 on the dot but sometimes sooner.

Same here. Most of the time
Andy 15 (1 month ago)
I was offered only 600 a week, I was like hell no. I live in California, and the route they were trying to give me was in a horrible area . That's one of the reasons why I didn't I take the job.
shortymackinem (23 days ago)
As a home delivery driver that’s how much we get paid if we do 100 or less stops. Most drivers do about 150 stops a day in my area in northern Cali which is like 1000 a week without tax.
CThompsonTv (1 month ago)
Makes sense. The only thing you be able to buy with that check since you live in Cali is food lol everything is so expensive there

Lorenzo Nevarez (1 month ago)
We would dispatch around 7:30-8:30 when our station was in Las cruces, NM. They moved our station to santa teresa, nm in July and now we get dispatched anywhere from 8:00-9:30 but 8 is rare. My route starts close to three hours from the new station.

QA should have taken care of that tape job for you
Joe Say Sneaks (1 month ago)
If it helps my average package count is 260-315 and I do about 110 stops. My routes heavy af 😏 also the load is ass most of the time I drive a hour away start time is at 9:30 and I deliver to a city 1 hour away so I don’t start until 11:00ish I do all deliveries in about 4-6 hours. But I also pick up as I go
Nakita Lin (1 month ago)
We dispatch about 745-830. Most days it’s closer to 830 unfortunately. Then about 30 minutes to get to my route which makes for a late start. 150lbs weight limit sucks. I would love for the FedEx big shots to run a route
Kevin Fisher (1 month ago)

Don't worry C. FedEx will even make a Catholic priest swear.
Big Boss (21 days ago)
Taylar James for real man. I use to not be like that...lol
Taylar James (21 days ago)
No doubt man. I never dropped the F bomb so much in my life when as I was a FedEd driver. Swearing almost became my main mode of communication lol...I took that job and shoved it!
CThompsonTv (1 month ago)
😂 you aren't lying dude
Diaz (1 month ago)
I worked for 2 contractors. I quit the first one because the pay sucked and if FedEx charged them for a damaged package or a late pickup they would take it out of our checks. Let me get this straight, I deliver about 1000 packages a week and if 1 gets damaged or is reported as such, I lose half of my check. NOPE! I quit the second contractor because he was cheap. He paid well, but the trucks were garbage. My foot went through the floor, literally in the cargo area. Another time my truck broke down and it took 4 hours to get me a replacement. I worked until it got dark then DNA everything. The straw that broke the camel's back was he switched my work area from a city to a rural area. I gave him 2 weeks notice and called an end to my time as FedEx. I'm thinking about going to FedEx Freight through their driver apprentice program to get my CDL, but I'm undecided. Right now I'm working in a Walmart distribution center making 20 an hour with all types of benefits. I just don't like the warehouse environment or working with other people.
Taylar James (21 days ago)
I feel you man. I got fired because I had an unaccounted package on two different  occasions over the course of three years. Thats two packages out of the thousands I delivered over three years. smh
Ian K (1 month ago)
Freight has an apprenticeship program? I heard they’re paying 12-15 a week
CThompsonTv (1 month ago)
Dang dude, that's crazy. Don't blame ya for quitting though
Big Boss (1 month ago)
Wow dude! This job gets frustrating. That crap happened to me as well while I was in Home Delivery. Truck broke down and waited for a replacement truck which I had to reload by myself. I. Was curse all the way to my first stop. I feel your pain....lol
Matthew Allred (1 month ago)
Usually dispatch is about 8 but than printers go down and paper runs out and you have 30 other drivers waiting for paperwork so....... it’s longer Here people usually quit because they get trained for a week than get thrown onto a heavy full route or they find out that other contractors pay a piece rate
Matthew Allred (1 month ago)
That’s probably what would happen if the station wasn’t slow about certifying drivers
Joe Say Sneaks (1 month ago)
Damn they get trained a week! My supervisor rode with me for a day and then I was left on my own.
CThompsonTv (1 month ago)
Yeah, that sounds about right. Spot on with the first part
BlownViper 505 (1 month ago)
Spot on, I quit bc I felt the money was not worth me going out there in below freezing weather while it's raining at the same time... NOPE. Doesn't even cover doctor bills lol
CThompsonTv (1 month ago)
Haha! I can't argue with ya there. Luckily it doesn't stay cold here long
Milles Shvarsfeld (1 month ago)

Dispatch 830
BigBaycon (1 month ago)
Dispatched at 9:30 today. Everyone was ticked. I don't understand how we can get out at 8 during peak and it takes til 9:30 on February 7. WTF! Debating taking a job at Pepsi. Tired of Grounds crap
charlesh805 (8 days ago)
BigBaycon I worked for Pepsi for 13 years and to come to FedEx Ground, big difference on how they run their company. Way More efficient to say the least.
kajun k1ng (12 days ago)
Your getting out early typically we get out past 9:30. Im a manager so usually if i have to run a route im not out till 11pm
BigBaycon (1 month ago)
I always hear people say they dont care about ground and never used to believe it, but the longer I work here Im starting to realize thats probably true
CThompsonTv (1 month ago)
Do what makes you happy man
CThompsonTv (1 month ago)
Same thing I was saying! During peak we got out at 8:15ish but now it's horrible
JJ JJ (1 month ago)
We didnt leave until 11am today. Its usually 845 everyday.
JJ JJ (1 month ago)
I work for Express so sometimes the flights are late, but yesterday the semi got stuck behind a fatal accident on the interstate. So that made it even later.
Nakita Lin (1 month ago)
Wow!!! That’s late!! The latest we can leave is 9:45 (it’s in the contract)
CThompsonTv (1 month ago)
11?! That's insane. Why so late?
